Sales, including mail order sales of firearms, may only be conducted by or through licensed firearms dealers.

Advertisement of firearms for sale will be prohibited unless the sale is to be conducted by or through a licensed gun dealer.

Dealers will be required to ensure that purchasers are appropriately licensed, and record and maintain details (type, make, calibre, serial number) of each firearm purchased or sold against the identity (name, address, licence number) of the seller or the purchaser.

Dealers will be required to provide records to licensing authorities.

Commercial transport of ammunition in the same consignment with firearms will be prohibited.

In remote areas where licensed gun dealers may not be readily available, special arrangements will be made to facilitate sales and purchases of firearms and ammunition.
